So Cal Reefers FTS Thread...


I would love to see some full tank shots of the local tanks around here. Please post a picture or two, with a quick description of the tank/system.

Hopefully looking at other setups(Display, Quarantine, Prop tank), overall husbandry, bio-load, etc.... We can learn from each other.

Constructive critsicm is always welcome and encouraged, but keep it constructive.

Awesome looking setup. Do you have some of these tanks connected, or are they all independent systems?

The tanks are connected, the main one is 250g and it goes into the gray bin (full of marco rock im trying to purple up). Bin in the background is just storage now, I am contemplating adding it as a second sump/fuge.

I love the color, it's whiter in person. Growth came from Reeflux 12K's.

I got them from rapidled dot com. So far it has 3 pendants of 12 LEDs. Mounted on heatsinks from heatsinkusa dot com. Then I mounted 2 computer fans on each one to keep them cool. I plan on getting 2 more pendants. Plus my frag tank has one pendant of 12 over it
